New Races, Vehicles, Discounts Come To GTA Online

Last week, Rockstar released the Cunning Stunts update for GTA Online, which injected a shot of adrenaline into the game's racing component. Speed remains a huge part of the action – they are races, after all – but the overarching theme is over-the-top tracks. Today, as part of a weekly series of updates, six new tracks are being added to the game, too.

Bike racers can showboat in, Afterburner, which takes place high above the city at night, and High Flier, another elevated track that goes around most of Los Santos' skyscrapers. If you're more into super cars, you can tear through tubes, over jumps, and around loops in Double Loop, or try not to toss your cookies while participating in the point-to-point Zebra challenge – this weekend's premium race. Off-road racers can do their best to avoid trees in Forest, while muscle-car drivers will have to do their best not to leave their paint on the canyon walls in Trench II.

Players can also add three new cars to their collections: The Ocelot Lynx, Declasse Drift Tampa, and Western Cliffhanger. If you're hurting for garage space, the 20-percent discount on properties with garages has been extended, too.

Finally, be sure to check out the Special Items category in your wardrobe before July 25 to snag a silver jumpsuit and matching helmet. You want to look good if you win, after all. Or, if you don't think that's going to happen, perhaps the helmet will help conceal your shame (and identity).
